Had a great day today at the Misi Christmas craft fair. It went really well and I sold loads of things and got lots of really nice comments so I was really really chuffed. Lets just say I made enough for a bit of guilt free fabric shopping so I can finally buy some fabric to try out my new coat pattern from Kitschy Coo. Well done to Emma at Misi for organising the fair. They were queuing out the door at the start and she got lots of people into the really cool venue (its where they film 'Deal or No Deal' with Noel Edmonds!) with some great local publicity. It was lovely to meet some fellow Misi sellers including Jean at Talking Beads who I tested the necklace kit for. My lovely friend Debi came and helped me out too which was lovely as we were both child free so could chat without distractions for a change.
and finally - what do you buy as the 43rd birthday present for someone??
An apron for their washing up liquid of course! OK - I know its a bit random but it really made me smile and the washing up liquid can be present number 44. This is also from Plump Pudding who also sells the most gorgeous badges and brooches and was very nice.
Jon and I decided that we should take Izzy and Sam to a Firework display in the evening. Shame we didn't read the info properly as instead of starting at 6pm as we thought it actually started at 8pm. The gates just opened at 6pm. So we spent £10 and nearly 2 hours dividing our time between a damp beer tent and the POURING rain waiting for the firework display to start. It was bloody freezing! We finally cracked and came home when a) Sam started turning blue with cold and b) Izzy started shouting 'I want to go home now' at the top of her voice so we missed all the fireworks but I did get to watch X factor so all was not lost.
